So, I was able to go out to dinner with my husband last night. It was the first “real” time I”ve eaten out since this diagnosis came along. I was a bit nervous, but thankfully the restaurant we went to was able to make things nice and bland for me. 🙂
I ordered a “side salmon,” which basically was a 4 oz. fillet with absolutely NO sauces or seasonings. Yes, I can do garlic and onions and salt and pepper, but I figured I’d be safe and do that on my own. I also had some steamed clams. That was the test food last night. I’ve not had clams yet, and I know on the Maker’s Diet any type of bottom fish is not allowed. But, I feel that it’s okay to eat those type of fish on rare occasions. We live in a modern world, not a Levitical world, and therefore I believe some liberties are in order! The clams were served with a white-wine/butter sauce (which was soooooo good!). I ate a handful and then, thankfully, had enough self-control to not eat any more. But oh, I could have eaten the whole bunch! Anyway….the clams, the salmon, and the steamed asparagus (sp? I don’t eat that often enough!) all did fine for my tummy. I also took 3 enzymes with this dinner (normal for me is 1 at eat meal), so I’m thinking that might have helped? I was just glad to be able to eat a “nice” dinner with my husband and some friends, and be successful in that.
New foods…hooray!!! (Unless the tummy says no!)
